    I don't know about e-mail by cell phone, but normally on computers you can send almost any file as an attachment to the mail. I am guessing that doesn't work for you, right?

    As far as I know the engine computers do not use Linux. So, it might be more beneficial if you ask that question on a car board. Traffic on this board is low. Years ago, with high traffic, there...

    Sorry, I said I had one class right now. That was a mistake. I have 4 classes. One needs this material.
